Fotobild’s 6th International Fair for Art Photographers; deadline for applications for “SELLING” is July 22

I received this via email today; event dates are November 8-11 in Berlin:

FOTOBILD is an international event for art photographers providing the chance to promote and support their own work and understand the art market.

FOTOBILD “SELLING” has become the major German fair for producers of photo art. In 2006 more than 14.000 visitors attended the four day event.

International curators, gallery owners, publishers, magazine editors and art buyers from advertising agencies will be invited to meet the exhibitors and review their photographic work

“SELLING” is FOTOBILD’s innovative version of the traditional concept of art fairs:
Present, promote and sell your photographic work directly to the public (select and design your own stand).

Take advantage of this unique opportunity and participate in the portfolio viewings for free

Win a free stand for the best application, selected by the jury

The 25 participants will be selected by an international jury.

For SELLING applications, participation fees and further information please visit our website: www.fotobild-berlin.de

Results: Photography Now ’07 On View at CPW

The Image selections by Alison D. Nordstrom, curator of photographs at George Eastman House for the exhibition “Photography Now” are on view at the Center for Photography at Woodstock through August 19th.

From the website:

Photography Now ’07 presents the works of nine widely disparate photographers that, when assembled in one room, makes an emotionally cohesive whole. Almost never do we look at photographs one at a time. In jurying an exhibition, rather than judging a competition, the principal concern must be to create an interesting, harmonious selection that becomes “one thing”. It goes without saying that the work must be good. By that I mean original, well crafted, and intelligent. Anything else would be jarring, distracting, boring or an insult to the viewer. However being good is not enough when what is being chosen is an exhibition rather than say, the Champion Pig at the County Fair.”

The website features a selection of the work of the nine selected photographers, as well as artists statements/bios; I’ve added their websites below if available.

They are:
Gideon Barnett
Chicago, Illinois

Paul Giguere
Arlington, Massachusetts

Chad Hunt
New York, New York

Allison Hunter
Houston, Texas

Andrew Liccardo
DeKalb, Illinois

Tamara Lischka
Portland, Oregon

Forest McMullin
Rochester, New York

Franc Palaia
Poughkeepsie, New York

and

Kristopher Stallworth

Congratulations to all!
